On behalf of everyone at Victoria Pet Adoption Society we'd like to thank you for choosing to adopt one of our wonderful pets. For the safety of the animals in our care, we have placed a hold on all adoptions until after the Halloween weekend. While Halloween is a lot of fun for children of all ages, the costumes, fireworks, decorations, and noises can be frightening for some pets, especially those that are new to the home and have not yet settled in.
Caring for all kinds of animals takes a lot of work and we are always fundraising so that we can provide our pets with the things that they need. Help us reduce our costs by donating something from our wish list.
Items that we are currently in need of are:
-Kitten Milk Replacer/Formula (powder mix is best)
-Kitten food (canned & dry)
-Cat Litter (all types)
-Temptations Cat Treats
-Gift Certificates for Doggy Daycare (including Whisker's Urban Ranch)
-Gift Certificates for Dog Training Services
-Gift Certificates to Pet Stores
